Acclaimed filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker is not perturbed over flak from audience on trailer of his upcoming film "Mohenjo Daro" and says one needs to be open to criticism.

The 52-year-old "Lagaan" Director counselled movie-goers to be patient and form opinion after seeing the film.

Asked how does he deal with criticism over the trailer when everything is proper - from script to casting - Ashutosh says, "We are open to that. When Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) was in good career phase a film named "Alaap" came and the poster had Amitji's face that seemed poetic. I did not go for it as I was enjoying watching him in 'Don', 'Trishul'.

"We have our own image or response to a trailer. In a trailer you try to depict a story. There are certain elements that shock you but you have to be patient and form your opinion after seeing the film. I think 'Alaap' was a superb film and Amitji was great," he added.

The trailer of Hrithik Roshan-starrer "Mohenjo Daro" invited criticism with fans questioning the depiction of historical times through VFX technology.

The epic adventure-romance film, written and directed by Ashutosh, features Hrithik and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles.

Reportedly, the film is set in 2016 BC in the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation. The film is about a man who falls in love with his enemy's daughter, who is a dancer.

The film, produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita Gowariker, releases on August 12.
